My trick to finding cheap fishing boat! Buying fishing boat for catfishing or bass fishing,

Get a super cheap fishing boat, trailer, motor and all the accessories for $800. Great fishing boat for catfishing, bass fishing, crappie, carp whatever!
This was a Gamefisher 12′ with a 9.8 Mercury two stroke outboard. 1983.

I got a 14′ aluminum boat and trailer for $50.

The trailer had 2 rotted tires, the lights were crap, the bushings in the suspension were rotted, the wood bunks were rotted and someone had once painted it John Deere green.

The boat was made in 1959 and was made with wood bench seats. The seats and the transom were completely rotted and couldn’t even be used as patterns for new seats. Also, someone had spray painted them an awful blue/green while they were in the boat so the boat had blue/green overspray inside. The bow cap was also busted, the rear corners had cracks and there was a crack in the side where someone hit the dock REALLY hard.

I got the aluminum welded up, got the trailer sandblasted and then repainted it myself with truck bed liner, replaced the bunks, bushings tires, lighting, benches and transom myself, got the bearings replaced by a pro and bought a $400 6hp 1976 Johnson outboard. The total cost was a hair over $1,000.

I’ve since added a 50 lb Minnkota trolling motor, fish finder, 4 rod holders, two 12 lb anchors and 2 seats. I also got a $60 tarp from Menards. Even with all that I’m only to about $1,500.

It’s not the fanciest boat on the water, but I still catch fish with it.

I actually owned an older sears Gamefisher. The hull design is amazing and way more stable than a jon boat in my opinion. Wish I would’ve kept it.

Fábio says:

I paid $550 for a 10.5 dinghy that came with an old Minnkota 30lb thrust motor. Fixed up the trailer to actually FIT the boat and added a Piranah Max 4 on it for THEN $100. Works sweet for my needs
